Just purchased today with my iPhone. Would like to put on my iPad as well. How to do that?

Many of our apps can be used on iPad and iPhone devices, a few are for iPad devices only, and iGPSGIS II is for use on iPhone devices.

Per information provided by Apple, if you use the same Apple ID on your iPad as your iPhone, you should be able to download the app that you have purchased onto your iPad as well, if you enable Family Sharing.

I want to know how many devices can be used with the same account

According to Apple, “You can have ten devices (no more than five of them computers) associated with your Apple ID and iTunes at one time.”

OK to upgrade to iOS 12.0?

“I just bought the IcmtGis Pro software today and I did install it on my Iphone 6s. I created new jobs and stored some points in it. When using the e-mail file functionality, I see only default jobs that were in the system but I do not see my newly created jobs. . . . I am running IOS 11.4.1 ready to upgrade to 12.0 but I did not want to screw things even more with the upgrade to 12.0 … Any suggestion on the fact that I should upgrade to 12.0 or I should not?”

It’s likely that you have the app set up to store data to iCloud. Please read the article at the following link.

It is all right to upgrade to iOS 12.

Will Stakeout iCMT use the external GPS?

“I am using an iPad. Does Stakeout use the gps in the iPad or can it get it directly from the Arrow?”

When an iOS compatible GPS receiver is turned on and connected to the iPad, it will automatically override the built-in GPS to update CoreLocation. When you toggle GPS on in an app like Stakeout iCMT, the app will grab the position data from CoreLocation. In other words, the app uses the Arrow GPS data indirectly.

Of the various CMT apps, only iCMTGIS PRO provides the ability to get the GPS data directly from the Arrow and the iSXBlue GNSS receivers. In the “Enable the External GPS” mode, iCMTGIS PRO will read the NMEA data directly from these GPS receivers.

Family sharing of iOS apps

“If I were to purchase iCMT GIS III, how many ipads with the same apple id could I put it on with the purchase?

It looks like the limit is 6:

Do I need cellular data for the app to work?

We received this question regarding the Deed Calls & Stakeout app, but the answer applies to our other apps as well.

The GPS data collection functions and most of the other functions will work without wi-fi and cellular data.

Some of our apps, like Forester GPS GIS III, Farming GPS GIS III, iCMTGIS III and iCMTGIS PRO will let you load a geo-referenced *.tif map and use it off-line.

Most of our apps provide a Map function to get and display the Map from Apple via wi-fi connection. However, you can cache the Map to use out there where no wi-fi is available. This means that you can call up the Map and display the area in which you will be working, turn off wi-fi then go out in the field. You will be able to view the Map while working with your app. As long as you do not play with the Map function while you are out there (such as switching from Show Satellite to Show Hybrid) or close Map, the background map should remain available.

Any Android apps?

An SXBlue dealer wrote:”I am a MAC user, but really prefer Android as a mobile OS. Got a lot more Android interest in the last 12 months than I do iOS interest.”

Yes, we have also received many inquiries about Android apps. However, at this time we do not have plans to develop apps on yet another platform. Currently, we have software for Windows, Windows Mobile/ Embedded Handheld 6.5 and iOS.
